My relationship with this bakery began in a time long past, back when I used to live in the area around Schlesisches Tor and would be on my way home from going out, some time between 4 and 7am on a Sunday morning. And Salut would always be open and always have my favorite Turkish pastry – Tahinischnitten. A flaky pastry filled with sesame paste, Tahini, that is to be eaten as fresh as possible.
I guess many of you, who’ve been reading this blog for a while, are now like What!? Sasaya hasn’t been reviewed here? Why yes, it’s true. The probably most popular of all the Japanese restaurants in Berlin has not yet been featured on this very blog although there’s just no reason for that. And because it’s one of my favorites it totally fits the topic of the week, catching up.
I decided, I’ll do a little catching up this week – out of whatever reason, some of my absolute favorite places in Berlin have not yet been covered on this blog. And we’re starting with one of my most beloved places for dinner: Drei. Although I’m not even sure that’s the official name.
When I heard about Street Food Thursday I was excited, when I got invited to taste a preview, I was beyond excited – and then very sad because my schedule told me I wouldn’t be able to attend for at least some weeks. Until the schedule changed and Street Food Thursday turned into a fix date for me and Mr. Duijsens.
It’s the same every year, after weeks of suffering from cold temperatures, icy winds and just too much snow, temperatures suddenly make a surprising jump to give Berlin a summery feel the local flora can’t live up to… So that’s why the above picture is lacking in something: leafs. The beautiful and giant chestnut trees covering the more than famous Prater Garten are still very naked and thus an odd contrast to the crowds enjoying beer in sleeveless shirts and short skirts.
